Institute of Atomic Physics and Spectroscopy (IAPS) of the University of Latvia (UL) is a scientific institute of the UL that conducts internationally recognized fundamental and applied research in atomic physics, spectroscopy, photonics, quantum physics and related areas, as well as research about creation of optical frequency standard and precise measurements of the optical frequencies with femtosecond frequency comb. New optical methods and devices for applications in industry, medicine and environmental monitoring are being developed in the Institute.

A high quality of scientific work is provided by qualified academic staff. Bachelor's, master's and doctorate programme students, as well as doctoral degree applicants are involved in the development of IAPS research projects.

The Institute has been supported by the European Commission as the Centre for Excellence in Fundamental and Applied Studies.
